FEB S.O.B. – by Annette Rochelle Aben


When I was growing up, it was never fashionable to call someone an S.O.B. In fact, it was a bloody insult!  Our mothers would wash our mouths out with soap and our fathers may have taken the strap to our tender behinds. Cursing was not acceptable and to intentionally insult another, well, that was a double whammy!

2018 Step Forward Attitude – by Angela Horne


Starting the year off with a step forward attitude.
Rising above the fear based collage of doom and gloom to now peal back the paper that the collage of such was hiding. Look to the original paper it was pasted to, that is wear the truth is -not distorted -just real. To now see the blank canvas under all that pasted collage paper is the truth of soo much possibility and opportunity now imminently available to you in these new times of truth, love based community, society, and world as a whole -unite collectively and soar as a nation can and will succeed.

Spirituality of An Elder In Memories – by Marie Pollnow


Memories can be many things.  I found in conversing with elders, memories were a delight at times.  Sometimes it would make them sad yet many of them took pleasure in sharing fun memories with me.  I will list just a few that I can think of and I definitely have my own memories that bring me joy.  Roy used to reminisce on his days as a copy machine salesman and how good he was at it.  He loved what he did, had great relationships with his clients and felt tremendous pride in providing for his family.  He also spoke of the times he was physically fit and strong and did all kinds of work around the house.  He was a fix it kind of guy.  That was something he never lost.  Even though his body no longer allowed him to do what he used to he really enjoyed stories of the past.  Then there was Joe.  He had great fun in sharing his time as an Army Ranger diving into the ocean, the folks he worked with and his job he had at a factory.  He told me some touching stories of how he and his family had arrived from one of those eastern block countries and as a young married man he allowed his sister, husband and brand new baby to live with them to help them out.  That was a beautiful thing.  He smiled when he told me his sister’s baby slept in a dresser drawer for a while.  Love held them together.

Sitting today in some kind of in between plane, feeling a bit raw and undefined. Reading up posts that are being shared with uplifting messages about growing awareness. My journey over the past 40 years is coming to some kind of renewal again. As I have experienced so many, yet this one feels different. How come this is feeling more undefined as to those points of change where it was clear what I was dealing with. Something was triggered yesterday, bringing up familiar memories about lifetimes with the red threat of female domination and violence. It is yet again a new round on the spiral of life, only this one combines it all together.

Do you want to improve your sense of speech? Is there a sense of speech?
You are right to ask if there really exists a sense of speech or a sense of words. A sense is used when we perceive something but before mental reasoning is activated. Is recognition of speech a mental activity only putting sounds together? These are subtle steps that we will explore in this article.
